More than 10000 puzzles

Japanese Mosaic is a clue-linking puzzle based on a grid with a pixel-art picture hidden inside. Using logic alone, the solver determines which squares are painted and which should remain empty until the hidden picture is completely exposed. Japanese Mosaic Puzzle also known as “Japanese Painting”, “Fill-a-Pix”, "Mosaic”, "Mosaik”, "Nurie Puzzle", "Nampre Puzzle".
Puzzle look like a grid with numbers scattered in various places. Each number (clue) shows how many squares around clue, (including square with clue) should be fill in. Therefore, used clues are in the range from 0 to 9 inclusive.
According to the principle solutions, Japanese Mosaic is very similar to the popular game "Minesweeper".
If you like Japanese crosswords, Sudoku, Philippine Puzzle and other logic puzzles, you will love Japanese Mosaic as well!
We only wish you to have success and a pleasant game!

It’s really nice! Lots of puzzles.

Woah, when did this app get an update? I uninstalled it a couple months ago because it was just a bit too difficult (I’d gotten stuck on a lot of the puzzles) and it seemed sort of abandoned, but today I’m looking through my old downloads and see the app icon looks a bit different. There’s hints now! It’s not the best system of hints I’ve seen (it’ll tell you if you have enough shaded-in pixels around a number, too many shaded-in pixels, or too many crossed-out pixels, but not if you have enough crossed-out pixels around a number) but it still works just fine and is definitely helpful.
This app has LOADS of puzzles, so it’s really good if you’re the kind of person who adores this kind of puzzle and, just maybe, has exhausted a lot of similar apps, lol.

Good but kinda annoying.

It’s really fun figuring out the pictures but when there’s a mistake it doesn’t tell you exactly where the mistake is. It only tells you which number is wrong but not the box itself which makes it difficult to fix the mistake because sometimes you have to restart completely.
I think it would be improved immensely if on top of the automatic hint system where it says which number doesn’t have the right number of blocks filled in there was a hint button to tell you exactly which squares were wrong.
Other than that this game is amazing and I’ll definitely keep playing until I can’t complete puzzles anymore.

Now Easier Than Before!

This is not the first time I downloaded J Draw, a game that uses numbers 0 to 9 around the game board, but I now know it better!

From what I do understand from similar versions,
the color of the number can become grey for a final solution, green for a correct guess, but red for a wrong guess. When you solve the puzzle, the numbers will disappear. But a small broom allows you to do the same picture and as a result, the original numbers are back! They are yours to keep! More puzzles please anytime!
